HARRISON TWP. — UPDATE @ 9:15 p.m.: Four people were injured in an afternoon pursuit involving Montgomery County Sheriff’s deputies who were following a sedan that was reported stolen in Dayton on Wednesday.
The detective, who has not been identified by name, observed a black Ford 500 being driven on Needmore Road about 3:45 p.m., according to the sheriff’s office.
The Ford 500 had been reported as stolen in an aggravated robbery in Dayton on Wednesday and was verified by the sheriff’s office as stolen.
The detective observed the vehicle stopped to turn onto North Dixie Drive from a parking lot just north of Needmore where a marked sheriff’s car approached the Ford with lights and siren activated. The detective’s car, which had its emergency lights activated, was struck by the Ford and pushed back.
The stolen vehicle then fled south on North Dixie Drive and was pursued by several marked sheriff’s cars.
The pursuit continued south on North Dixie Drive when the driver lost control of the vehicle, causing it to cross the northbound lanes of North Dixie and hit a house at the corner of North Dixie Drive and Hillsdale Avenue.
The driver fled the crashed vehicle but was detained a short time later. The driver and three passengers were taken to local hospitals, all suffering from serious injuries. Their conditions Thursday night were not available.
The intersection of North Dixie Drive at Hillsdale Avenue was closed to Neff Road for several hours for the accident investigation.
